Speeding stop leads to gun charges


A Breathalyzer test showed that Mosley’s blood alcohol level was .21, more than twice the legal limit of .08. He did not have a driver’s license or a gun license.

Besides the 2009 Lynn gun case, in which investigators with a search warrant found two unlicensed guns in Mosley’s possession, he has prior firearms cases dating to when he was a juvenile.

Defense attorney Patrick Regan did not specifically address the allegations but suggested that his client, who has a 4-year-old child, was not a flight risk.

He urged a lower bail than the $75,000 sought by Prosniewski.

Besides setting bail at an even higher amount than the prosecutor had requested, Lauranzano ordered that Mosley be detained until a probation violation hearing, meaning that even if he can come up with the bail money, he won’t be released until the earlier case is resolved.

A probable cause hearing was scheduled for Dec. 19.
